Abstract

The authors conducted a study to identify variables that predict the probability of persisting in the study of economics. The results suggest that females persist as economic majors in smaller proportions than do their male counterparts. In addition, the grade that first-year women earned in the initial course affected persistence differently from that of first-year men.
